Instagram testing Post Reactions and ditching hashtag sharing - Android

Post Reactions work similar to Story Reactions.

In the last couple of years, Instagram has seen such an exponential growth that it has helped it beat one of its closest rivals Snapchat. One of the reasons behind this growth is new features that the team keeps adding from time to time. It also keeps on testing numerous others and now, Instagram has been spotted testing Post Reactions and removing Share option for hashtags.

These new features have been spotted by well-known app researcher and coder Jane Manchun Wong (@wongmjane) who has discovered various Instagram features before their public release. She has now spotted that Instagram is likely to allow users to offer Post Reactions, pretty much similar to Story Reactions. It means users will be able to send a particular post as DM to their friends while also adding quick reactions to it. These quick reactions are exactly the same as Story reactions which basically are bigger-sized stickers.
